“For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers…” (1 Peter 3:12a)

Tonight, let’s just thank our Lord Jesus for all that He is doing and will do. What a mighty God we serve!

If you are in the middle of hearing a “wait” or a “no” from the Lord, trust that He is still good, and still hears you.

With Love, in Christ,

Translating the Bible into Hausa!!!

Hi, friends. I just wanted to share a totally important, amazing opportunity.

For many years, people who speak the Hausa language (those usually found in West Africa) have had to learn english to read the Bible. But now, some people are embarking on translating the Bible into the Hausa language!!!

Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1JKA-CD4R8&feature=youtu.be

These people need to know that God Loves them– and speaks their language, as the video says. Would you pray with me over this amazing project being done, for it’s success and for many who speak the Hausa language to know Jesus?

“Dear Jesus,
We thank You for this amazing opportunity. We pray in Your Name that You would bless and Have Your Hand upon this project, and that many, many people who speak the Hausa language would come to know Your Salvation and Love.
In Jesus’ Name I pray,
Amen.”

Exciting News: New TV Show, Bob Loves Abishola

Last night, I came across a show called “Bob ❤ Abishola.” In the show, a man named Bob goes to a hospital, and while there, has a nurse who is a Nigerian immigrant named Abishola take care of him. He falls for Abishola—and that’s all I’ve watched so far 😊

This is way out of the ordinary for American TV, and I am excited to see how they portray Abishola and her Nigerian immigrant family. I wonder why they chose Nigeria; it will be interesting to find out. I pray that it actually sheds light on Nigeria and what is going on there, and that as the show portrays Nigerians, they would not just be seen as “another country from corrupt Africa.” Those in Nigeria are more than statistics—they are people, and I hope that this show allows watchers to see that. 

THOSE IN NIGERIA ARE MORE THAN STATISTICS—THEY ARE PEOPLE.

Please pray with me, that this show is 1) culturally correct, 2) puts Nigerians in a good light, and 3) helps shed light on what is actually going on in Nigeria. Thank you, guys!

You can find “Bob ❤ Abishola” on CBS at 8:30pm.

(I was not sponsored or asked in any way to highlight this show. I’m just excited about it!!!)
